photo I'm the IT Infrastructure Specialist at the University of Cambridge Department of Computer Science and Technology ("The Computer Laboratory").

I manage the department's datacentre, network infrastructure, research systems and a small team of sysadmins and technicians.

In a past life, I designed protocols for data centres. One of my projects is MOOSE, a system to improve the scalability of Ethernet; another is WAPITI to enable network-layer mobility (of virtual machines, primarily) at scale.
